Understanding Mercury and Health with Varify
Mercury, also known as "quicksilver," is a heavy metal naturally found within the Earth's crust. It presents itself in three distinct forms: elemental, inorganic, and organic. Elemental mercury is easily recognizable with its shiny, silver appearance. Interestingly, it transforms into vapor at room temperature, adding to its mystique. On the other hand, inorganic mercury forms bonds with metals like gold and silver, while organic mercury, such as methyl mercury, poses a greater threat due to its easy absorption into the body.
